21 - 24 July 2021, 15th International Conference on Deontic Logic and Normative Systems (DEON 2020/21), Online

Date: 21 - 24 July 2021
Location: Online
Costs: No registration fees
Deadline: Sunday 21 February 2021

The biennial DEON conferences are designed to promote interdisciplinary cooperation amongst scholars interested in linking the formal-logical study of normative concepts, normative language and normative systems with computer science, artificial intelligence, linguistics, philosophy, organization theory and law. In addition to these general themes, DEON 2020/21 will encourage a special focus on the topic 'Norms in Social Perspective'.

Keynote speakers: Marcia Baron (Indiana University, Bloomington), Emiliano Lorini (IRIT-CNRS, Toulouse University, France), Shyam Nair (Arizona State University, Tempe), and Sonja Smets (ILLC, University of Amsterdam).

We hope the global and local situation will allow us to hold the conference in person. If that will not be the case, we are prepared to hold the conference online, partially or totally. Contributors will be informed in advance.

Authors are invited to submit an original, previously unpublished, short research paper pertaining to any of DEON topics. The paper should be in English, anonymized, and should be no longer than 15 pages (including notes and appendix, but excluding bibliography). The submission of a short abstract must precede the paper’s submission.

Due to COVID-19, we had to postpone the DEON conference to the summer of 2021. A first round of papers was already selected last summer. With this extra call for new submissions, we hope to attract authors who were not already accepted within last summer's round. Selected submissions for this round will be published in the proceedings together with those of the first round, and presented at the conference. We strongly encourage women and other members of under-represented groups in academia to submit a paper.
